Wellness Care

Because prevention truly is the best medicine

One of the keys to your pet’s health is heading off medical issues or illnesses before they occur. The best way to do that is with proper wellness care, which alerts you and your veterinarian to any conditions that may be develop down the road, and helps you prevent them before they cause a problem. At Seymour Veterinary Hospital, we make annual wellness exams an essential part of our regimen to keep your pet happy and healthy. Your pet’s wellness exam will include:

  • A complete physical exam
  • A nutritional assessment and recommendations as to how you may wish to change your pet’s diet
  • Blood work to determine whether everything’s fine with your pet’s internal organs
  • A review of any breed-specific issues that your pet may have inherited
  • An instruction sheet you can take home, which includes measures you can take to keep your pet in tip-top shape

It’s especially important for us to keep you informed at all times about all aspects of your pet’s health. You can count on our veterinarians and staff for clear communication in which they answer all your questions in a friendly, compassionate manner.

Vaccinations

To prevent infectious diseases and chronic illnesses, it’s essential for your pet to get the full array of recommended pet vaccines. At Seymour Veterinary Hospital, we give vaccines to puppies and dogs—kittens and cats—four-legged friends of all ages.

Parasite Prevention

The effect of fleas, ticks and heartworms on your pet can range from bothersome to fatal, so it’s a good idea to take preventive measures that stop parasites before they infest or infect your pet. At Seymour Veterinary Hospital, we know that parasites are relatively easy to prevent, yet once they take hold, very difficult to get rid of.

Spay and Neuter

At Seymour Veterinary Hospital, we provide caring, cost-effective spay and neuter surgeries for cats and dogs. It’s a simple procedure and a humane precaution to take, since it reduces pet overpopulation, decreases the number of unwanted animals and overcrowding at shelters, lowers the probability of health problems for your pet, such as cancer or tumors and prevents undesirable animal behavior, including roaming and marking.
